Today might be a big day in Beirut
Today Lebanese women are holding a sit-in in front of the Prime Minister's office and residence demanding that equality in the nationality laws be included in the ministerial declaration. I'll be there for sure!
If anyone else happens to be in Lebanon, here are the details. See you there.
Sit-in for Women’s Rights to Nationality: Thursday the 24th of July,
Place : Grand Saray- Beirut
Time : from 3:00 to 4:00 P.M
The new cabinet is drafting its ministerial declaration and we are requesting that this declaration makes specific reference to an egalitarian reform of the nationality code.
The new minister of Interior, Attorney Zyiad Baroud, is a human rights and women's rights activist. He has been a staunch supporter of the nationality campaign. We are glad that he is now in a position where he can play an active role in reforming the nationality law and ensuring that it no longer discriminates against women
Lebanese women do COUNT ON YOUR SUPPORT!!!
Be numerous, and invite your friends!
